Good "table" manners

The "table" was up a big tree, several branches, very fine location, because the heavy branches had flat surfaces, but it's still not easy balancing a big meal when the wind is blowing and when there is possible theft from above, crows. Dining on pigeon involves plucking feathers, eating some flesh, plucking more feathers, eating. Squirrel seems harder. Lots of fur. I'm not sure of the ratio of fur to meat. You have to have a good grip on the meal while you tear it apart. I also wonder how fast a meal grows cold in the dead of winter. I could hear the snap as the hawk ripped the meat, but blood was not dripping, so I think this was rapidly turning into frozen squirrel tartare.

Still more images to edit.
